Meet the Amazing ASUS Chromebook Flip C434
14 inch display in a 13 inch body
ASUS Chromebook Flip C434 is not only slim (.6”) and lightweight (3 lbs), but the new NanoEdge design gives it an ultra-compact footprint, so you can enjoy all the benefits of a 14-inch FHD display in a chassis that is as small as many 13-inch laptops.
Amazingly thin bezels on all sides
The new four-sided NanoEdge display is simply breathtaking with ultra-slim bezels (5mm thin) for a near-borderless experience. The touchscreen display also brings deep darks and bright colors together in Full HD resolution to deliver an eye watering true-to-life experience.

It also helps enhance the powerful audio, by creating extra space underneath the laptop.

As soon as it became available I ordered it. I wanted to compare it to my Pixelbook. (At twice the price or more). One of them could stay and one would have to go.
Update: after more testing and comparison, I did the PB and decided to keep the C434!
The C434 is a beautiful piece of hardware. Its aluminum finish is perfect.
The screen is excellent compared to the Pixelbook it is not quite as bright and brilliant but very close.
This is a widescreen versus the 3:4 on the PB. Looks good, better for movies, a bit awkward for use as a tablet.
The keyboard is excellent. I'd call it a tie with the PB.
Backlighting on the keyboard is good but n daylight it's better to turn it off as the letters on the keys are very hard to read.
Trackpad smooth, again a tie.
Weight goes to the Pixelbook which is about a pound lighter.
Storage, even though the Asus has a micro sd card slot, the PB with 128 or 256 gb of internal storage gets the nod. Chrome seems to deal with internal storage more easily than the external card.
Sound very nice for a laptop. Much better than the PB.
Ports, they both have 2 USB C but the Asus adds a USB A 3.0. Advantage Asus.
It was a very close call, but I decided to keep the PB for a while longer. I bet I'll order the Asus within the next year though. Maybe with a larger HD and a faster processor when available.
One of the initial reviews of the C434 complained about the keyboard. The person's complaint didn't relate to the tactile interaction with the keyboard (which is good) but rather to the viewing of the keys on the keyboard (white on metal). My initial thought on this, prior to receiving my own C434, was that this reviewer must be very short-sighted to return the computer for such a minor complaint. However, he or she was absolutely correct. In the spirit of creating a very contemporary keyboard, the white letters on the aluminum keyboard results in a very difficult layout to see in daylight. I would need to tilt and move the keyboard to position my hands properly (and I type very fast by touch so this is not a hunt and peck complaint). In dim light with the backlight on, the keyboard transforms into a wonderful experience, but using it during the day was a frustration for me I couldn't get over.
I was also disappointed in performance. Since I was an early adopter, I have the 4GB model with the core i3m processor. For light web surfing and simple tasks it's fine, but if I wanted to view my Google photos, for example, or use the Android version of Lightroom from the App Store, there is a definite lag in performance. I'm not sure if this relates to the 4GM of RAM or the i3m processor, but once I upgraded to the X360 (8 GB of RAM and a i3 U processor) it was an entirely preferred performance experience.
So, to conclude, here is my compare and contrast of the C434 with the HP X360.
The HP X360 seems to be constantly on sale from it's $600 list price. I got it for $450 but it can be had for as little as $399. Great value at either of these reduced price options. I was going to hold out for the C434 i5 with 8GB of RAM but I ultimately concluded that that price point would not come close to the X360 at its discounted price.
The C434 is brighter and much nicer and has those little bezels. This is the one aspect of the C434 I miss the most. The X360 has only a bearable screen brightness and color output as compared to the C434, but ultimately this was a tradeoff I was willing to make (although I still struggle with).
The C434 is about 1/2 pound less in weight and is marginally smaller. Again, I would opt for the C434 in this case but the real world difference is really not that significant.
I love typing on the X360. It's got a great feel and travel and nice backlight. The C434 was fine at night but that keyboard during the day was awful to use because of the white on metal.
Hands down the X360 wins. Ok , it has a fan that comes on occasionally, but it smokes the C434 with any use other than normal web surfing or simple applications. Using the X360 with the better processor and RAM is a joy compared to the C434. Also, as an aside, I have noticed that Google Play Apps seem to run better on the X360 but I'm not sure why? For example, I have an app that gives me notifications and when I clicked on the C434 it would not take me to the App but I have no problem at all with the X360 properly behaving in this regard.
If you want a stylish Chromebook and your needs are limited to web surfing and light Applications, go for the C434. If, however, performance is at all a concern and you plan to do some work or moderate play, I would opt for the X360. Both are wonderful machines in their own right and it's a pleasure to see the evolution of the Chromebook.
Top international reviews
First off, it is as others have mentioned, a lot heavier than it looks. At 3.1lbs, it's a good half pound heavier than my wife's Zenbook from 2015. It's a little thicker than I anticipated, though I suspect that's to support the various ways you can prop the device up. The weight made tablet mode unwieldy so I didn't use it often. Overall the build quality felt rather premium.
The screen was fantastic. The 14 inch display is probably the stand out feature. Watching media is a joy with it's 16:9 aspect ratio. Viewing angles were excellent and I had no problems with display brightness or colour accuracy. The one major issue I did have and one of the reasons I ultimately returned it was due to a horizontal 'screen flicker' that occurred when scrolling through a webpage. The 'flicker' took up about an inch of the screen and would show my wallpaper background. It would happen for a split second, but it was enough to drive me a little nuts as I couldn't reproduce the problem. This happened even when scrolling in portrait view in tablet mode. I couldn't tell if it was a hardware issue or a software issue, but doing some searching, it appears others face the same problem. I can say the issue persisted in V74, V75 and V76 dev channel (the last version ultimately broke the way Android apps worked, so that was unacceptable to begin with).
Keyboard and trackpad were fine. There was enough key travel that typing was not an issue, but the left 'Ctrl' key was not properly installed, so it kept sticking. I eventually fixed it, but I shouldn't have had to deal with that on a brand new device. As others have mentioned, the keyboard can be a little hard to read, especially with the backlight on in a well lit room. Turning off the backlight made it better, but I wish they stuck with black keys and white lettering for better contrast. Speaking of the backlight, it didn't feel even as some spots were brighter than others. When turning the computer on initially, the backlight would flicker as well (resolved by adjusting brightness - but again, I shouldn't need to do that).
The trackpad is plastic, so it's not smooth to the touch as glass would be. It was acceptable, but at times it would register a click when I lifted my finger which got annoying. Another bug I ran into was when waking from sleep, sometimes the mouse cursor disappeared and I was forced to use the touchscreen as the trackpad became inoperable. I had to either restart or flip it into a different mode then back again which suggested it was probably a software issue.
Speaking of the touchscreen, again, it was fine but animations were not as smooth as say on an iPad. Scrolling lead to some jelly effects that wasn't particularly pleasant to the eye. Using this as a tablet was not the best experience, sadly.
Last thing I'll mention is the speakers. They're down-firing and I didn't find they got particularly loud. It sounded a little 'tinny' lacking any sort of bass and really only usable when working on a flat surface. Trying to listen to something with the laptop on my lap was difficult. Since they're down-firing speakers they get covered when in tablet mode so they became useless. Only tent/stand mode made it acceptable.
I'm disappointed I came across so many issues/bugs with this device. I really wanted to love it, but not knowing if the issues would be fixed by a software update, or if I got a defective device, ultimately lead me to return it. It's a shame as this device is being touted as the successor to the C302 but I don't think it's there yet. I would consider the C302 instead, but updates are only guaranteed until 2022 whereas this one would be updated until 2024, as it goes with Chromebooks. I may consider purchasing this again if the issues are worked out, but until then I'll probably consider the next iteration.
I love this chromebook and it's exactly what I needed! The keyboard backlighting may be the only down side I have to mention but if you're comfortable with typing without looking at the keys, you won't have much trouble.
Battery life and screen are the major selling points. It's hard to describe the impact of having such thin bezels until you boot it up and see for yourself.
Some say it's a bit expensive, but the aluminum body makes this feel like a very high quality laptop. Like anything else, you have to do your research beforehand. If you don't want aluminum, look for another laptop, but for me, this was everything I expected and more.
Don't take my word for it though, look up more reviews online and do more research before deciding. I did, and I'm not dissapointed with my purchase at all.
Considering its charm, build quality, and capabilities this Chromebook embodies the definition of a purchase with tons of value. I received it this morning and I have only used it for a few hours but I could not be happier. I got the 8GB version just to make sure i never have to deal with performance problems while multitasking.
An observation: the price fluctuates radically. I bought mine on Amazon for 880 $ CAD. A couple of days later it rose to over $1000. As i write this the 8GB version is offered for $807.75.
You will see a lot of opinions online about the many aspect of this Chromebook. The worst characteristic of it in my opinion is the weight. It is surprisingly heavy but I can tolerate that because of everything else it has to offer. Some say the keyboard and the trackpad are a problem. I am OK with both. Yes, the trackpad is not glass but it is not bad. The keyboard works well too.
Overall I could not reasonably subtract any stars because of the great value of this machine. Even if it lacks in some areas it has so much more to make up for it. And it is beautiful with these tiny bezels so I do not think anyone would regret buying it.
This should be on the listing somewhere to state that it is a US power adapter only, or there should be an adapter included with the unit.
I thought it was a good time to buy one of these as the price dropped from approx $800+ down to $699. I'm a little miffed/hurt though as it continued to drop an additional $150. Sad :( I wish there was a price drop policy I could take advantage of this time. I'm ok with $30-50 etc type drops but $150 price drop so shortly after me buying it has me a little miffed. It is too much of a bite off my buy price that its too hard to chew on, if ya get what I mean.
I like the picture quality of the touch screen, good battery life and speed.
I use it for web browsing and streaming video to a Chromecast on my TV.
I was watching for it to go on sale and when it did I bought it at a good price and quick delivery.
But it's a Chromebook, I was expecting at least the functionality of Android OS, unfortunately that is not the case, some Android apps will work and some will not.
Personalisation is VERY limited.
Google first line support was no help at all. They read directly from a script and did not know how to deviate from it. Once we had ruled out everything they know to do, they blamed it on Asus and told me to call them for a solution.
Asus, rightfully said it wasn't their problem. Google Drive is after all, a Google product. I contacted Google again, told them the story. That's when the runaround began. They say they will call, but they never do. Sorry about that, they will call tomorrow. They never do. I dealt with this for 10 days and had enough.
I even tried doing a complete reset of the Chromebook, to put it back to factory configuration. Just in case. It made no difference.
I contacted Amazon, who said they were passing a feedback form along to Google.
Google did reach out with me again, many days later. They said that I had been trying to deal with Google One, when my perk was for Google Drive. They were technically correct, but the troubleshooting path I had taken took me to Google One. Regardless, my newfound troubleshooting channel did nothing to solve the issue and kept referring me back to Asus, who keep referring me back to Google.
After a month, quite to my surprise, my problem got escalated to Google engineers and Google finally reached out and offered to just manually grant me the 100GB for two years perk. It was completed just like that.
So for anyone out there looking to get a Chromebook primarily to get that 100 GB of free drive space in Google's cloud for two years, good luck. If the redemption works, good for you. If it doesn't, you're probably not going to get it at all unless you are prepared for a fight.
The keyboard on the back when its in tablet form freaks me out.
I also have never experienced a chrome operating system before and its messing me up severely. I couldn't figure out how to change the wallpaper for like 2+ hours with help from 3 different people hahaha.
I actually bought it originly for the camera for video calling but the camera actually SUCKS HARD. I've also run into a snag with trying to get my Webcam to work on it... its not showing up no matter where I go or what I do.
Which brings me to the settings, there basically are none. And personalization is resting at a mere 0.0001% with only being able to alter the wallpaper.... (after much ado)
Sorry not the best review. I like the computer. I do. I just can't use it yet and its making me crazy. I love how it feels, the weight is really nice actually, everything is so smooth and the keyboard is spectacular. Touch screen works well and the volume is immaculate.
I just feel all of a sudden computer illiterate... there's not even a delete button....
I'll figure it out and when I do (eventually) I'll come at you with a better review. All in all its a good item for sure. It is definitely quality. Aside from the camera of course, which is SUPER disappointing.
Oh and people keep saying the light sucks in the keyboard... not for me....
And I can ... maybe... see where they're coming from with the white symbols on the metal... but I don't find it remotely an issue. . I mean, as long as you're in arms reach to type you shouldn't have a problem haha I don't see a reason you'd need to see them otherwise so....
Feel free to skip this chromebook
